Every Family Has A Story

My name is Allison and I, along with my husband Jim, are the owners of Bansen Farms. We bought the farm 2 years ago as a complete fixer upper. From the house to three barns, we managed to do a complete farm renovation.

In the middle of renovations, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. With three little boys that need their mom, I walked away from my career as a Nurse Practitioner, closing my practice of 2 years to focus on being a mom and healing.

This is where the farm brought me so much comfort. It was a space where I could become creative with renovations and design. One of my creative ventures is writing an opinion column for the local paper, a beautiful outlet to tell my story and raise awareness.

So many changes in such a short time. Life as I knew it had a whole new meaning and titles took a backseat. After six months of chemo, surgery and radiation, I am happy to say I am cancer free.

Lessons: Life is unpredictable, crazy and messy. Hang on tight. Don’t live in fear, take every breath for what it is worth, don’t rush life, slow down. Mom is my number one role.  

It brings me great joy to see people enjoy this magical space called Bansen Farms, encompassing 20 acres of woods and fields. I hope it brings comfort and peace in a world that could really use it right now. Stay tuned! More reno is coming. It’s more than a farm, this is OUR story.

"Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale." 

"Bansen Farms was the most magical place in the world for me and my husband. Our wedding was a fairy-tale! They were so EASY to work with and the barn renovations were absolutely gorgeous. I would recommend this place to anyone and we will be back on our 1 year anniversary! What a dream. Thank you for working with us and being so helpful and easy going. :) "
